Lift Station grease

Hey all,

Wondering if anyone adds a chemical into their lift station pit to break up the grease in there. My pump controls contractor said there’s a ton of grease down there, and that can put strain on the pumps and trash can more easily stick to the pumps. He said he’s other institutional customers that have lift stations (or something similar) put in a chemical to break up the grease. Probably like soap breaks up grease.

He’ll reach out to those guys and ask them what they use, but I also thought I would see if anyone here had experience with this.


We pump it if it gets to that point or causes problems. Had grinder pumps a couple years no problems with grease yet.
